We’re happy to announce a new member of the INTERNeX family, who arrived this week. A really warm welcome goes to Samantha. I really had a great chat with her where she told me some facts about herself. Of course I’ll share them all with you guys 🙂
Samantha is 22 years old and originally from a small village, only 90 inhabitants as she said, close to Frankfurt in Germany. I’m sure you’ve already heard of Frankfurt because of the huge international airport as well as the fact that it is an important financial centre. Just a side fact; now back to Samantha. After finishing her apprenticeship and subsequently her diploma (in Germany it’s called “Fachabitur”) she decided to become a full time traveller for the next months.
In my opinion that definitely sounds amazing. After spending a few weeks in Iceland she has now seized the opportunity to gain more experiences and grow beyond herself in Canada.
Samantha is participating in our volunteer program for 5 weeks and works in the same animal hospital as Sophie. You know? The one with the cute baby cats 😉 Seems like this is the place to be 🙂
And there’s more to it; her motto is definitely “great times ahead”. After her time in Canada she plans to travel to 7!!! more countries all around the globe.
But for now she’s really interested in spending time in the Canadian nature, get to know the Canadian way of life and experience Canadian culture herself every day.
Since right now she’s still a bit afraid of spending time alone in such an unknown city, which is understandable in any case, feel free to form a group and spend some time together. It’s so much fun getting to know new place or try unknown activities together. Such a new place can always create a strange feeling but as time goes by you’ll get used to it and in the end one don’t want to leave anymore. I can assure you from my own personal experience .
That’s it for now – I’m sure you’ll get the chance for another chat with Samantha at today’s pubnight at Malone’s Taphouse, 6pm 🙂
Have a great day:)
